Rear side slide windows' pull/latch replacement

Has anyone had experience replacing the black rear side slide windows pull/latch? The previous owner purchased two slide window combination latch and widow pulls, but it looks like the install requires removing the window. Has anyone replaced the latches before or removed the glass? If so, I would l...

Re: Oil type for the 100 hp engines

Got a reply from Yanmar. Just said that I can use SAE15/40, API CD or newer (CG/CH or even newer). I indicated the boat is being used in FL, AL, MS and LA.

Re: Oil type for the 100 hp engines

Got back to the boat this past week and pulled out the service manual. The service manual indicates SAE 15W40 without differentiating engine type. However, attached to the back of the service manual and not part of the manual there is a list of multiple Yanmar marine engine types including the 4Js, ...

Re: Oil type for the 100 hp engines

I looked online at the Service manuals and could not find the reference to the SAE 30 for the 100 hp engines. While I was on the boat, which is now in Florida, I am presently in New Orleans, I saw the Yanmar service manual the previous owner left on the boat which had the SAE 30 engine oil requireme...

Re: Oil consumption for Yanmar engines

There are no visible sign of a leak. The engines have 2000 hours on them. I was told it could be the valve seals. There was a discussion I read about overfilling causing excessive oil use. The engine manual says to check the oil level when the engine is level. In a boat this is not possible. Go figu...

Oil consumption for Yanmar engines

Does anyone know what normal oil consumption is for the 100 hp Yanmar engines? I would like to hear from other owners as to their experience. I am looking at one engine that burns a quart approximately every 25 hrs and the other a quart every 40 hours.
